Pakistani police will ask a court to charge five Americans detained in the country this month with planning terrorist attacks and jail them for life.
Had they been brought back to the U.S., Obama would make sure they were given a tap on the wrist, if that. After all, they didn’t actually DO any harm to anyone.
The young Americans, from Virginia, are accused of contacting militants groups over the Internet in a bid to wage holy war. Pakistani officials have said the Taliban had planned to use them to carry out attacks inside U.S. ally Pakistan.
“A joint investigation team has concluded its probe and we’ll present them before a court on January 4 to seek life imprisonment sentences under anti-terrorist laws,” said Usman Anwar, police chief in Sargodha, where the men were arrested. (Obamanation America no longer has a charge of terrorism, only mad-caused disasters)
“We’ll prove in the court that their aim was just to spread terrorism under the garb of jihad and for that, they were in touch with Taliban and other Arab militants in tribal areas.”Pakistan’s Pashtun tribal lands bordering Afghanistan are known sanctuaries for al Qaeda and Taliban militants who fled the U.S.-led assault on Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001 attacks on United States.
Washington is pushing Pakistan to root out militants who cross the border to attack U.S.- and NATO-led forces in Afghanistan. (That way Obama won’t have to) Emails showed that the Americans had plans to travel to a Pakistani nuclear power plant, according to police.
The men — two are of Pakistani ancestry, one of Egyptian, one of Yemeni and one of Eritrean — were arrested in Sargodha, home to one of Pakistan’s biggest airbases, 190 km (120 miles) southeast of Pakistani capital Islamabad. REUTERS
